Quiet thunder

Food selection specials gave a variety at very moderate prices. Staff were friendly and attentive. Atmosphere varied from quiet and quaint in dining to lively in e bar. Great experience. Crab pretzel a little salty but good Dirty menus was only concern

Our favorite meal at the Olive Tree is spaghetti with meat sauce. We've never had a dish here that wasn't good, but the spaghetti is special to us. It tastes like what we make at... More

Even if you make homemade pizza try adding crab cake on you! Piña colda is very good. Music is nice, mostly... More

Good service, Great atmosphere, Great Food, Large portions. Wonderful Italian Salad served in a large bowl for the table. We always eat half of our entree and take half home. Our favorites are the spaghetti with meat sauce, lasagna, chicken cacciatore. Good breadsticks, too.

I have eaten many times at their original location in Aberdeen, MD and loved it. The only things that are the same was the salad, bread sticks and portions (large). The cream of crab soup was very good. The veal parmigiana the meat was tough. The tortellini was sticky and sauce bland. And their Caesar salad was really bad. This... More
